Hey! Wow!! We finally got our blog going–thanks to Dirk vom Lehn. Welcome. I hope this blog can become a regular site for our shared interests in music.
The first piece of information is exciting. I have agreed to host the Couch-Stone, spring interactionist, symposium at Texas State University. The days are March 27, 28, 29, 2014. Please let me know if you are interested in taking part in a fairly intimate discussion of: music and self-identity; music and social scenes; music and emotions; and other possible topics. Tentative plans include an evening of music in San Marcos on Thursday; a full day of panels and a keynote address on Friday; a “field trip” to Austin’s famed 6th Street on Friday evening; a town hall meeting on SI and music Saturday morning, and then back home in the afternoon. I hope to help subsidize some of your expenses. Please email me ASAP (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in attending, and our particular interactionist topic of interest.
